MERRY FIGHT
FOR THE SEMIS
Peerless Will Try For a Fall
Out of Madison This
Time
Now that all the teams in the Semi
-Professional League are playing
glassy ball. Saturday's games are
creating more than usual interest.
Peerless and Madison will clash on
the Newport diamond and this should
be the real stuff.
Peerless has made Madison go the
hardest to win than most the others
and should have won all three games
as they out played Newoprt every
time. Madison always had the luck
«io strike Peerless when they were
^without a catcher. Finger has al
ways had them at his mercy and will
again shoot them at the "Champs.'
Weldin. whose catching has been
more than was expected, will be his
helpmate. Staib. whom Peerless tap
ped rather lively the last time, will
he on the mound as he is anxious to
aget back.
Tremont and Newport will try con
clusions at Rockford Park. Newport
has .made Tremont work to their ut
-tniisi to win every time they have
•played and as Tremont is somewhat
weakened owing to the King brothers
being in Canada, it looks good for the
"Villagers." Stewart Is in fide form
and is anxious to win which makes

,. Landlith, the "resurrected dead
team,'' will show Highland that it is
Jfc.ry much alive.
Hastings says he is tired of every
one rubbing it In and is going to have
"his men in the best of condition and
the Highlanders will have to play
to win as they never played before.
He has not decided who will pitch.
Both Logue and Coffin are anxious to

Highland will send Knopf in to hold
Highland's end up.

Why You Should Buy
During Our August Sale
Thousands and thousands of people will remember our August Sale of last
year as the greatest value-giving ever attempted in the history of this city. For
fully four weeks the sales swept everything in their path, attaining gigantic pro
portions and resulting in phenomenal business. But even the record of last year
will be broken by the August Sale this year, broken by reasons of larger and
better stocks, greater varieties, and superior values. Watch the papers daily for
new offerings. Your dollars never commanded such a high premium,
do the worth of $2.00 at this gigantic sale.

According to a member of the Royal

Some time ago Samuel Green, a

an injunction restraining the order
from collecting assessments after au

Justice Kelly's decision upholds
Green's objection, but allows the order
to double the number of assessments.
